I have a travan tape I would like to get the data off please help

Hi, I have a set of 5 hp colorado travan 8 gig tapes that were created in Windows XP backup.  I am trying to get the data off them, but the system that created them is now dead.  I tried a program called media merge pc, but was unsuccessfull, they don't support the travan series.  

Question, is there an application that can catalog this tape?  Is there a walk through to get this data another way?

thanks a ton.

The Backup can be loaded to a newly created folder on a current XP machine by selecting an alternative destination/location. This will not disrupt the current systems folders. Do not select System State. T

Select the Restore and Manage Media tab. At the bottom of the page under "restore files to" select Alternate Location.
